The Miami Heat beat the Detroit Pistons 89-78 to take a 3-1 series lead. The Heat now have a commanding lead in the series and it's win or go home for the Pistons in game 5. Shaquille O'Neal got 21 points and 9 boards in 36 minutes. O'Neal had so much energy in the first half but it didn't carry on and the Pistons came back. Dwyane Wade got 35 points and 6 boards in 44 minutes. DWade got hot late and made a few shots you don't practice. Udonis Haslem got 16 points and 5 boards in 33 minutes. Haslem played well and hit that jumper when they doubled Shaq. Antoine Walker got 7 points and 6 boards in 35 minutes. Walker didn't do much offensively but helped the Heat win the battle over loose balls. Tayshaun Prince got 15 points and 4 boards in 41 minutes. Prince played great I still think he should get more back downs like game 2. Chauncey Billups got 14 points and 7 assists in 40 minutes.
